  After it flowers (hopefully) - move it! 

If the flowers open, post a pic and someone should be able to tell you the variety.

Keep it well watered. They can sulk for a few years before they get going. Last year mine produced 1 flower and dropped buds before they opened. This year I have kept it well fed and wtaered and I have been rewarded with flowers - plural!!

I know Picotee and Sea shells were on sale in Wilkinsons last spring - don't think they are difficult to get hold of. Check out the seed catalogues this winter and GC's etc next spring.

Cooking apples are usually green in my experience. Best thing is to cut a fallen apple and taste it. I usually juice our glut of apples or cook them.

Any ideas for an entry.....
